NGC 1817ngc1817


Open Cluster in Taurus
NGC 1817
Mag 7.7
Paired with NGC 1807


13/12/14
A pair of very sparse Open Clusters in the same 25mm FOV
NGC 1807 has a 'bow and arrow' shape to it, and in fact appears much more of an asterism than an Open Cluster
NGC 1817 is even more sparse, really just a line of Mag 8 and 9 stars
However, when viewed together - rather neat!
